Day 1 of the Broadway beautification project between Cliff Dr. and Forest Ave. went about as well as you'd expect whenever there are extended lane closures anywhere in Laguna Beach.
That meant traffic jams on Broadway inbound that frequently backed up all the way to Coast Highway.
Obvious detour: If you need to get through the canyon, use the portion of Forest/3rd that runs in front of City Hall.
Lane closures will continue from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Until late May.
But hey, on the bright side, Daylight Savings Time returns this weekend ...
